I’ll reflect on this weekend’s hackathon soon, but right now I’m too amused by this morning’s development that I have to share it first. Not only did I finally figure out that “PrtScn” is much more user-friendly in Lubuntu than in Windows, but I finally played around with the development capabilities of Lubuntu. Python 2 and Python 3 are pre-installed, so all I needed to do was install a text editor and I was in business! Although once I typed that sentence, I did realize that there was probably already a text editor pre-installed.
Of course, there is a pre-installed text editor. Why wouldn’t there be??? I mean…an OS with Python 2 and Python 3 pre-installed wouldn’t skip such a basic utility. In demo mode, I lose all configurations and installs with each shutdown. So while Leafpad may not be as pretty, it’ll do the trick until I install Lubuntu for keeps.
It looks like I may finally commit to a permanent install of Lubuntu 16.04.3 i386 on my clunky old 32-bit desktop PC. Maybe even this afternoon! But first, I want to figure out how to get those screen shots to save my monitors to separate files or something.
